Italy; the part of it which deals with the employment of the disabled is critically discussed in this article. Attention is drawn on the lack of clarity and on evident inconsistencies within the legislation itself. A comparison with previous (1999) legislation shows how the rights of the disabled have now become weaker, especially with respect to rules about placements, threatening the still existing principle of compulsory hiring. Particularly questionable appears the institution of agents contracting out jobs to firms which, if applicable to the disabled as well, is likely to reduce the chances of employment of the severely disabled. Discrimination, both by employers and by colleagues is discussed, and more attention to proper evaluation of job potential and to difficulties faced in the job environment is advocated. An example of good practice is described.
